Absolutely Flab-u-lous: Bernie Jones’s journey from Laundry Queen to Slimming Sensation!
Following the resounding success of “Nobody Puts Bernie In a Corner,” which had audiences on their feet with continuous standing ovations during it’s sold out tour across theatres in both the north and south of Ireland, Bernie is back with the next uproarious chapter in her story.
Get ready to laugh until your laundry comes out wrinkle-free as we follow Bernie’s side-splitting adventure towards life in her forties and her quest for a slimmer waistline!
In this hilarious one-woman show, Rozlyn Sheridan reprieves the role of Bernie Jones, the lovable laundry business owner who finds herself in a spin cycle of laughter as she forges firm friendships at her local Slimming Watchers group. Bernie’s entrepreneurial spirit has driven her to expand her business, “Stitched and Steamed” from her garden shed to the local High Street. Her hard work has not gone unnoticed and she finds herself nominated for the prestigious title of “Business Woman of the Year.”
However, nothing never runs smoothly for Bernie as her love life takes a complicated turn when her ex-fiancé resurfaces and her childhood sweetheart, Johnny McKnight, returns from Australia after two decades. As Bernie navigates the hilarious ups and downs of her romantic entanglements and her counting calories crusade, her business is threatened by a conniving local business woman who attempts to sabotage her flourishing enterprise.
As a one-woman show, Rozlyn Sheridan portrays numerous hilarious characters, including Bernie’s no filter mother, her stroppy teenage daughter, Josie, and her many quirky friends at Slimming Watchers. Audiences can expect an evening filled with laughter, heartwarming moments and a reminder of the importance of friendship.
Join Bernie Jones and get ready to laugh your way to a slimmer waistline because who needs squats when you can burn calories with belly laughs?
